Like what the? ....Does Comey work for CNN?  Of course is one of the Times "confidential American senior officials, and the FBI hasn't confirmed it yet, so..thus...made up?

WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, asked the Justice Department this weekend to publicly reject President Trump’s assertion that President Barack Obama ordered the tapping of Mr. Trump’s phones, senior American officials said on Sunday. Mr. Comey has argued that the highly charged claim is false and must be corrected, they said, but the department has not released any such statement.

Mr. Comey, who made the request on Saturday after Mr. Trump leveled his allegation on Twitter, has been working to get the Justice Department to knock down the claim because it falsely insinuates that the F.B.I. broke the law, the officials said.

A spokesman for the F.B.I. declined to comment. Sarah Isgur Flores, the spokeswoman for the Justice Department, also declined to comment.

Mr. Comey’s request is a remarkable rebuke of a sitting president, putting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the position of questioning Mr. Trump’s truthfulness. The confrontation between the two is the most serious consequence of Mr. Trump’s weekend Twitter outburst, and it underscores the dangers of what the president and his aides have unleashed by accusing the former president of a conspiracy to undermine Mr. Trump’s young administration.

Ok, let's play the game.  So since then when does an FBI director ask the DOJ to squash an now what will be an investigation? Note that Comey asked this of the DOJ, AFTER Congress said it would look into it.  If Comey proved anything over last years election season is that he's a political animal, and so knows how to muck things up.  How does he know it's false without investigating.

But I think there is more to this then meets the eye. If this move is "unprecedented" as the Times says, meaning it's never been done before, you have to ask, what is Comey's involvement - if any - in the wiretapping, from the "what does he know that may implicate him?" department.

Whether or not the DOJ rejects the claim, an congressional investigation will move forward, so sooner or later we find out.
